Essential 8 Business Cyber Security Recommended Update.

The Australian Government recently developed Essential 8 for all businesses to combat the rise of cyber hacking in Australia.

Implementing the Essential 8 proactively can be more cost-effective in terms of time, money and effort than having to respond to a large-scale cyber security incident.

The Essential eight is a series of baseline mitigation strategies recommended for all organisations. Implementing these strategies as a minimum makes it much harder for adversaries to compromise systems. Now is the time to update your company’s Cyber Security and improve compliance.

The Government has a dedicated website on the topic you can view here.

The danger that current hacker activity poses to your business has increased in the last few months by 42%. CyberPro can implement the new government recommendations and requirements to keep your organisation secure.

There is a list of Essential Eight minimum requirements recommended by the Australian Government’s Cyber Security Centre. You can view the list here.

The “Essential 8” describes what every business should be doing to secure their data and networks from cyber-criminals. Their advice is that classic “Anti-Virus” is of limited effectiveness and is ranked at 15th in the priority list. The number one ranked mitigation strategy is Two Factor Authentication.

In a nutshell, EVERY account that is tied to a service that is remotely accessible (think “cloud” or remote login service), should have Two Factor Authentication enabled. Based on our experience and observations, this advice is firmly backed by our team of engineers. We URGE all businesses to implement this minimum level of security as soon as possible.

Furthermore, it is our commitment that all future maintenance and project work carried out by our engineers on your systems will be performed compliant to this high standard of security.

By implementing these security practises, it is CyberPros intention that your systems will be robust enough to not only hold up to a formal security audit but be capable of repelling a sophisticated and targeted cyber-attack.
